Offerings to my idols

In case you missed it, last Saturday, I went to a book signing for Sabaa Tahir @sabaatahir who was being interviewed by Nicola Yoon @nicolayoon at Barnes and Noble at The Grove. It was an amazing experience and I’m still wrapping my head around it. .

I like to bring authors a small gift when I can. I had decided to make a copy of the found poem I created for Sabaa’s #torchstagram contest that I entered and was selected as a winner. (Btw, my signed Torch copy came yesterday and I put it up on my Story.) I didn’t want to make Nicola feel left out, so I made one for her based off of her book Everything, Everything. They both seemed to like it and said they were going to put it up in their offices. šŸ˜ØšŸ˜³šŸ˜­ Okay. So I’m pretty much ruined for the rest of the year.

Lettering was done with my favorite lettering pens Pentel Touch Pens and the border was done with the Artist’s Loft water color paint palette from Michael’s. I tried to coordinate the ink and watercolors to match their covers.

Even though I’m new to lettering, I didn’t hate these and I’m so glad the authors liked them!

Anyone else bring offerings to their idols? If so, what do you guys bring? If not, you can ask me about how nonchalant I was about giving these to them, i.e. how much I tried not to squeal and sob when they said they liked the poems.
